WordPress 5.0 Beta 2

WordPress 5.0 Beta 2 is now available!

This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site to play with the new version.

There are two ways to test the WordPress 5.0 Beta: try the WordPress Beta Tester  plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”), or you can download the beta here  (zip).

WordPress 5.0 is slated for release on November 19 , and we need your help to get there. Here are some of the big issues that we fixed since Beta 1:

Block Editor

We’ve updated to the latest version of the block editor from the Gutenberg plugin, which includes the new Format API , embedding improvements, and a variety of bug fixes .

Meta boxes had a few bugs, and they weren’t showing at all in the block editor, so we’ve fixed and polished there.

Internationalisation

We’ve added support for registering and loading JavaScript translation files .

Twenty Nineteen

The Twenty Nineteen repository  is a hive of activity, there have been a stack of minor bugs clean up, and some notable additions:

  • There’s now a widget area in the page footer.
  • Navigation submenus have been implemented for mobile devices.
  • Customiser options have been added for changing the theme colours and feature image filters.

Everything Else

The REST API has a couple of bug fixes and performance improvements. PHP 7.3 compatibility has been improved.


We’re fixing the bugs:
All the ones you’ve reported.
Some that we’ve found, too.
